Wonderful pics! They remeber me Cestius Pyramid in Rome.

Kind regards.

I found this bit about the pyramid on a site called Experience Ljubljana:

What used to be a Roman wall 2.4 meters wide and 6 to 8 meters high was renovated less than a century ago by the architect Joze Plecnik, who knew how important nature is. He designed a park inside the wall and built a stone pyramid over the gate using old roman stones from the neighborhood.

Thanks Pablo and Ross

I visited this piece of artificial archaeology over twenty years ago and it had a strange and mysterious presence. As a pyramid in a wall it must relate to the Pyramid of Caius Cestius in Rome, but Plecnik gave that idea a unique quality.
